Chelsea 2023 Rain Barrel Program

The City of Chelsea is pleased to announce its partnership with The Great American Rain Barrel to offer discounted rain barrels to all Chelsea Residents. 

Climate crisis is intensifying the water cycle, making wet periods wetter and dry periods drier. Severe droughts can make both rainfall and flash flooding more severe, creating weather whiplash events. When heavy rain falls over drought-stricken soil — which is often hard and cracked — it cannot soak into the ground, and becomes runoff. Rain Barrels can be part of the solution.

Reasons Why You Should Buy a Rain Barrel

  • Decrease your water bill by using rain water for outdoor watering
  • Rain water is a healthy, chlorine and chemical-free water source for plants and gardens
  • Improves residential storm management
  • Rain barrels slow pollution from runoff

Rain Barrels are available for purchase by residents at the discounted price of $79.00.
